For a moment, it looked like the Phoenix Suns were going to send Game 5 of the Western Conference finals into overtime with an improbable late-game run.

That was before Ron Artest hit a put-back as time ran out to give the Los Angeles a much-needed 103-101 win.

Artest rebounded a Kobe Bryant miss and banked in the decisive shot after missing two shots on the Lakers’ previous possession.

“I missed a lot of layups during the regular season,” Artest said. “I’m

just staying with it and trying to stay focused and play my part, see

what happens.”
